Young Living Essential Oils: Fake & True Benefits
Apr 19, 2019

Reading time 7 min.

Young Living is the most well-known and largest company producing essential oils with eight farms in North America, one in South America, two in Asia, three in Europe, and two in Australia. Young Living essential oils are a preferred point to start with oils since they are reliable, pure and have a strong reputation. It’s very important to use pure oils since other versions do not contain nearly as much beneficial components.

Recently, there’s been a lot of hype about essential oils’ miraculous benefits. Even though essential oils are good for you, some claims went way overboard.

If you’ve heard that Young Living essential oils cure cancer, or any other serious condition, don’t believe it! Essential oils are great for complementary therapy, relaxation, as they do alleviate headaches, but they certainly cannot be used solely for the treatment of ailments such as cancer or Parkinson’s disease.

The following guide is aimed at providing you with an overview of Young Living essential oils broken down into four main categories: Essential Oils for Home, Essential Oils for Wellness, Essential Oils for Beauty and Essential Oils for Balance.

Essential Oils for Home

Young Living essential oils for the home are created to replace home products containing undesirable harmful ingredients with safe alternatives that include only natural ingredients.

Young Living essential oils for the home include:

• Oral Care

Young Living Thieves Dental Floss supports strong teeth and healthy gums with a mixture of Thieves and Peppermint essential oils. Toothpastes and mouthwashes also make up the oral care collection and are both rich in essential oils and provide many benefits to your dental health.

• Natural Cleaning

Traditional cleaning products often contain potentially dangerous chemicals whereas home products from Young Living are all organic and composed of different essential oils depending on the product’s purpose. Many options offered by Young Living such as the Purification essential oil, is widely used for laundry giving a clean and fresh smell. The same product is also great for refreshing the scent of drawers, garbage bins and any other places that could use some extra freshness.

• Home Purification

To make your home smell clean and fresh, use diffusers like Aria or Dewdrop Diffuser with a few drops of Peace & Calming or Purification essential oil.

• Natural Protection

Natural protection essential oils like Inner Defense boost defensive system’s activity by removing a fungi for a friendlier environment while helping your respiratory system and benefiting the immune system.

Essential Oils for Wellness

Young Living offers products with essential oils such as multivitamins, antioxidant support, age-based nutrition, targeted support, liquid wellness, weight management, joint mobility, energy and stamina, and healthy snacking. Depending on your particular goals, you can choose a specific product for you.

Essential Oils for Beauty

For Young Living, it’s very important to celebrate the natural beauty that everyone is born with. To help you shine, keep your skin and hair radiant, there are essential oils and organic products with infused essential oils. Again, this depends on what you seek but there are products with varying purposes such as anti-aging, facial care, bath and body.

Essential Oils for Balance

Essential oils without a doubt can calm the mind and elevate the spirit. When taking care of your body, don’t forget about the emotional, spiritual and mental self. You can use essential oils through diffusion, direct inhalation, or massage. There are numerous oils for spiritual health: Sacred Frankincense and The Gift essential oils are ideal for enhancing your spiritual practice. Feelings Kit, Valor Roll-On, and Brain Power essential oil blend are perfect for mental wellness as they help discover your true potential. Whether you need to relax, or to boost your energy, there are essential oils for each specific aspiration such as Valor, Release, Joy, or Peppermint.

There are many reviews about how essential oils can be the ultimate cure of all diseases, which is definitely not the case. There is no valid scientific study that would prove any such miraculous effect. Young Living essential oils are great as a complementary therapy, they can be widely used throughout our daily lives. Start by trying various oils for different purposes and find your favourites!

As with any other field, there are surely people who make fake essential oils that not only help but can hurt you. I have heard that many essential oil users prefer to make oils at home. When you do something for yourself, the benefits of the product increase significantly.

Winter wellness advice

This is a short consultation, intended to provide you with generalised advice that does not require the amount of information I typically gather during a 1-hour consultation.

I can provide advice around supporting your body to get through winter feeling strong, calm, uplifted and protected against sniffles. If you or your child has come down with something, I can provide more specific advice around herbal and nutritional approaches that may be of benefit to help you feel better sooner.

Natural transition

I am a nonbinary individual, and as such, I want to fall somewhere in the middle of male and female with my gender expression. This can be problematic for the medical system, as it views transition as either "ftm" or "mtf."

Likewise, seeking HRT or other gender affirming care can be expensive and inaccessible.

I'm here to provide you with the information you need to get around these barriers, naturally.

When you come to me as a client, rest assured you will receive:

  • Thorough research into the concerns you have
  • An empathetic listener
  • Fast turnaround of information (such as links, articles) or anything else you might need

With my help, you'll find more euphoria in yourself and the peace of mind that comes with using methods born from Mother Earth.

Please book only on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays!

Aromatherapy and Herbalism

When we are trying to grow a plant, it is important that the soil is moist and properly fertilized. When the roots are happy, the plant will flourish, producing fruit, flowers, oxygen and life! We can take the same approach to our own bodies. If our soil or living environment isn't habitable or the nutrients we are feeding ourselves aren't nourishing enough, we grow weak, unstable and sometimes it can lead to chronic conditions and disease.

This consultation will walk us through your medical history, diet, exercise and daily life so I can determine what areas we need to focus on. We will discover what kind of constitution you have as to identify which herbs and esscenses are the best fit for your body. We will then come up with a plan on how to overcome the issue or issues at hand.
